Karan Johar has finally decided to breakthrough from his glossy films. The filmmaker had announced his first venture into the horror genre and now has unveiled its poster. Directed by Bhanu Pratap Singh, produced by Hiroo Johar, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta and Shashank Khaitan first official poster of 'Bhoot: Part One - The Haunted Ship!' is out.
Poster features actor Vicky Kaushal screaming out as he looks out of a window with sheer fear as a creepy hand grabs his jaws.
Sharing the poster KJo wrote on his Instagram handle, "Presenting #Bhoot : Part One - The Haunted Ship! The FIRST in the franchise, starring the supremely talented @vickykaushal09, directed by @bhanu.singh.91. Sailing towards you on 15th November, 2019.

Just 2 days before unleashing the poster Karan had announced about him venturing into the horror genre. He wrote, "Film announcement on Monday! STAY TUNED! @apoorva1972 @bhanu.singh.91 @shashankkhaitan @dharmamovies" Click here to view the post.
Karan was keen on the title BHOOT, which he felt was apt for the genre. Film buffs would recall that Ram Gopal Varma had made two films under the same title in the early 2000s. Karan reached out to RGV, requesting for the title for his new franchise. And, he instantly honoured his request.
Thanking his gesture, Karan says, "I made an unreasonable request to Ramu, asking him for his franchise title BHOOT and he graciously and magnanimously agreed to give it to us without even blinking an eyelid. All of us at Dharma are blown away by his generosity and are eternally grateful to him. We aspire to make sure the title is in the right hands of horror."
BHOOT — Part One: The Haunted Ship marks director Shashank Khaitan's debut as a producer. It's also Vicky Kaushal's second outing with the banner. The film, shot at some lesser-explored locations in Gujarat and the makers are planning to release the film on November 15, 2019.
